From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Empty Cache. When you are done with that...
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset.
See if that helps...

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 15, 2010 2:38 PM (in response to Carolyn Samit)I may try this, still doesn't answer the question of how to manually edit the list though. If I do this, all of my favourite pages, including pinned ones will be reset, won't they? And does reset safari wipe bookmarks?Macbook (Al, late 2008), Mac OS X (10.5.5), 2.0 GHz Standard (2GB DDR3, 160GB), Not installed VM or Bootcamp XP yet
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 17, 2010 7:25 PM (in response to Carolyn Samit)I may be talking into the void here but I decided I should at least post an answer to my own question to help the next person. Caroline's suggestion of resetting Safari and emptying cache is a start point but some problems remained even after doing so. I was unable to add the Gmail login page to the top sites list even while following the method the toplist page itself suggests- dragging and dropping the URL to the page while in edit mode. I know that perhaps if I unpinned all of the top list sites, Gmail might show up as a popularly visited site anyway but I am not that patient.
The eventual solution came about when I was bookmarking a random page using ⌘+D (the + button by the url bar serves the same purpose). I noticed one of the options of where to keep the bookmark is Top Sites; when I tried to do this with Gmail, it worked!
Hope this helps somebody at some point!
